Ads on core4d

I'm sorry what? What "Pop Ups"?

There are no popups. There are a couple of banners at the top, left and right. The banner at the top is debatable but the others do not hamper the readability in any way.

They do hamper the readability when you are not logged. Both the right and left one, at least in my case, are hovering on top of the forum, blocking it. Very annoying. 

This could scare new users. 

When we are logged everything is fine. I actually like the top banner, it's always relevant ads (e.g. Render farms, plugins, etc...), very informative.

I am 100% certain this should NOT be the case and is a bug. Thanks for letting us know.

I don't know what resolution or zoom you are on, but on my 1440p screen there is a lot of empty space between the forum content and the banners on the right and left, not blocking anything.

A lot depends on how wide your browser is set up so I would imagine it looks different on tablet / phone etc. I have a big screen so can make it wide enough that ads appear on sides, they also dissappear when thin enough so I guess we all have a slightly different experience. I haven't got a problem with any ads, only takes a second to click them off if they are in the way, and like hikarbur said some of em are quite useful. Ive seen stuff that I never would have discovered otherwise and checked out a render farm for first time and got free processing etc.

The only footprint I make on the web is here at the Cafe (I avoid all social media platforms).  Shamefully, for quite some time I only supported them by buying their products (mostly tutorials) and it wasn't until recent events that I became a monthly contributor.  Over time, I hope people realize what a gem this place is and open up their hearts and their wallets to keep it going.  We have some top notch people running it -- top notch in their C4D knowledge as well as their character.  

 

My fear is that the Cafe is a place that people largely take for granted like I did for all these years.  Only until it is gone will you realize what you have lost.

Sorry...but I simply do not have enough faith to be an atheist.

Same here, I’m experiencing the exact same problem. Really annoying as I do not always log in. Again, I’m fine with ads, but when they start hovering over the content, it’s crossing the line.

Like 3D-Pangel this is the only place on the web where I leave a mark apart from linked in, and Ive learnt so much here over many years as well as being directed to other learning from here. As well as the administrators doing a great job there are people here that will take time out to really help you with any issues you might have, more often than not going above and beyond what would be considered a normal helping hand. There are people here that actually work for MAXON answering your questions as well as people that are just totally at the top of their game, very often taking time out from what must be well paid work.

Im also guilty of taking things for granted and should be a contributor even if for only 2 euros a month, I dont really make any money from cinema anymore but I pay plenty of things that are many pounds a month on subscription, adobe, dropbox, lottery, phone  etc etc, I cant even buy a cup of coffee for 2 euros so after reading this thread Im subscribing from today, more than worth it for all those hair pulling times when you know the cafe / core will sort you out.

 

if you cant afford the two euros It only takes one click to log in, is that too much to ask for access to experts that may just save your ass one day when yer desperate.

 

Ya cant please all the people all of the time !

Heres a grab below which I guess is what people are talking about, they seem to disappear when the page becomes less than 770 pixels wide, and dont become clear of the main area until about 1700px wide, but as mentioned many times it all disappears when logged in.

Yea, I can reproduce the issue. Before that was not the case, but I know whats the culprit. We will look to fix this. :cowboypistol:

Not sure leaving nasty ads hovering over the text is the best way to recruit new members. Think twice.

I dont know that the owners are actively recruiting new members, I dont imagine thats a problem with 47000 at the moment. More join every week so I dont think they are scared away by a few ads that have drifted out of position, if that is the case then its their loss as far as Im concerned.
